Just for the Record is a studio album by American country music singer, Barbara Mandrell, released in August 1979.

Mandrell's career was beginning to reach its peak with the end of the 1970s. Mandrell's sound began to change, especially with this album. This album (like her previous album) also spawned two singles. Both of these singles were Top 5 Country hits. The first single, "Fooled by a Feeling" also peaked on the Billboard Hot 100 and on the Top 30 on the Adult Contemporary charts. The second single, "Years" went to #1, as well as the Top 40 on the Adult Contemporary charts. This exemplified Mandrell's new crossover style. The album was produced by Tom Collins, who helped Mandrell bring out this Pop sound onto her albums. The album became very successful.

The album also included a cover of a pop tune called "Darlin'", also covered by Tom Jones.

The album peaked at #9 on the Top Country Albums chart in 1979, as well as reaching #166 on the Billboard 200, her first album to peak on the Billboard 200.
